Looking for the experts. Starting this weekend.

Just trying to finalize "the list." 2005 cc 4x4

Arp studs, oem 18mm head gaskets, Ipr egr delete gen2, oem oil cooler, hpop pressure fitting upgrade, turbo drain tube, blue spring, dummy plugs, Cat-ELC (flush first), SCT (still trying to decide from who), hopefully 175/stock noz from warren diesel. Anything I missed or something you would change? Do stand pipes come with oem head gaskets?

Already have intake, exhaust, cts, coolant filter, and FS2500.

Any last words of wisdom before I order these up and dig in? Going at it engine in cab on. Thanks for any help or advice.

Take a look at my build thread in my signature. I would recommend converting to Rotella T6 5w-40 full synthetic if you haven't already. Also standpipes do come with the new gaskets. Do the updated turbo oil feed as well and I also would plan on getting the metal cold side CAC tube and junk the plastic one. Also the SRD35 from snap-on is a great tool for in cab head stud jobs.

turbo intake oil tube is updated also, i did mine when in there. Also, if youve ever considered the BD oil cooler kit, nows the time! - I ended up doing the BD oil cooler like months after I did the full build with new stock oil cooler, ended up being a lot of work twice. Also if i could do it again, i would of thrown in some 155s or stock+ injectors since your in there already!

Thanks for the replies! Tuscany, I've read over your thread a bunch. I was just going to pull the hood but you have me thinking about pulling the whole front off.
I wish I had the money for the BPD oil cooler but it's just not affordable right now.

If your going to do it with the cab on than going in through the front will be your saving grace on this job. It is a little more work and you do need to evacuate the a/c then have it recharged afterwards but your body will thank you later for not having to lay across the top cross member.
